  1. Create a text block and put some words in. While still editing that, the Mac defines option-arrows to move the insertion point by words and by extension option-shift-arrows. (Windows ctrl-arrows). It appears you remapped control to command which is incorrect. Command-arrows means move to the end of the line. Option-↑↓ is beginning/end of paragraph respectively though I can't see a lot of use here. I can't fix this using the keyboard control panel and find it extremely aggravating. If I'm at work, my brain thinks Windows. I can't handle 30 years using a Mac and it not working like a Mac. Mildly annoying but not aggravating and it can be fixed using the Keyboard Syspref (or the very Windows one you could have omitted) but is only cosmetic and not worth the effort. Apple decided to show each modifier key to hold so it doesn't show ⌘> for Bigger but shows ⇧⌘. Related... we're used to icons for Portrait/Landscape which required too much thinking to find. Maybe Adobe got "clever" there too (not going to pull up PS Elements to check). There are standardized keys beyond ZXCV such as all Apple apps. Check out the apps that come with a Mac and you'll see a slew for text. (Harkening back to keypads, it doesn't show ⇧⌘= but ⌘+ or at least it does on keyboards with one like mine.) I can understand following Adobe shortcuts and again, can change them so it's not as big of a deal.
  2. I searched the site and faq without luck. I have an outlined font that I want to fill the whitespace with a gradient. I tried converting the typed text to curves and it appears to have made a single bezier line through the entire glyph (take a C and put a line on the surrounding the inner continuing to the outer edge and then close the C to an O keeping the lines). So, it's treating the text strokes as fill-able but not the whitespace. The attached how do I fill outlineed font with a gradient.pdf shows it well Is there an way without converting to bitmaps (yuck)? Thanks❗️
  3. Hello everybody, I have a problem with exporting a Publisher document on Mac: I use double-page spreads in Publisher, but once exported as PDF both pages are merged, creating one horizontal page in the PDF instead of two facing portrait pages. When printing, this subsequently leads to false proportions and makes it literally impossible to have the magazine I'm working on printed correctly. How can I fix this? Thanks for your help!
  4. I have a really strange situation where View | Toggle UI is STUCK in the View Mode, and no matter what I try, I cannot get back to "Working Mode" with the Tools and everything else. Has anyone experienced this? Is there a fix for this?
  5. I have drawn some black lines, on a separate layer, but have now decided the lines need to be a different color. They took me quite awhile to get exactly how I wanted them, so I really don't want to try to redraw them; especially since I would like to have two versions of the lines, and that would require redrawing them absolutely perfectly(not possible for me) twice. I need to retain the feathering, so the flood fill won't work, since it makes them look thicker and chunky. I followed the instructions for the Color Replacement brush, but the only color that is changing is the very lightest of the feathered pixels along the edge of the line, but even they are not changing to the correct color, but a somewhat grayish hue of the replacement color I chose. I did see another discussion, when I searched the Color Replacement brush, about the color not changing correctly. That person finally resolved his problem by using "Protect Alpha", but I can't find "Protect Alpha" in my program. I did try changing the color using an adjustment layer and recoloring it, but I can't get the color I want.
  6. Hi there, I bought Affinity on the app sore on my mac and have recently got a new desk top windows PC. I was looking to get affinity on this machine too as i know you can have it on a number of machines if its just you using it. When i go to sign into my account, it dose not recognise the email address that is associated with my apple ID. Is there a way for me to get this on both PC and Mac without having to purchase two licences Thanks!
  7. working on iMac late 2009 with SSD (500GB) and 16 RAM on the latest version of OS el Capitan (see screen shot for more details). AP 1.7.3 installed on SSD which is bootable disc. My workflow is to import NEF files (nikon d810) to Lightroom 6.14 (standalone version, hence the el Capitan as OS installed and used on my iMac). After some basic adjustments files are either exported as TIFFs to a temporary folder on SSD that I created for files I need to work with AP, or from Lr with Edit in... to Affinity 1.7. When editing in AP (Photo persona) I have observed that that some filters do not work or changes are not visible even with the extreme setting applied. There is no rule... however I would say that in 90% of cases filters do not work. So far I observed this behaviour for: Frequency Separation, Unsharp mask, Clarity, Shadows/Highlights, Highpass, Apply Image (for the greyscale mask)... very disappointing... I don't think it is related with the tech specific action of my iMac as there is this 10% of files that can be edited with these filters with no problems and I am able to observe edits taking place in real-time on my screen.
  8. I'm not sure why this is the case, but if you compare, say, the Mac Finder list of resources (photos, in my case) with Lightroom's list of photos and with Affinity Publisher's List of the Resource Manager, the sort order of the Mac and LR match, but the Resource Manager has a different order. I'm not totally sure, but it seems to be the way leading numbers on the names are sorted. Mac and LR sort by the numeric value, then alphabetical, Publisher sorts by, I believe, hex value - or by character value, then alphabetical characters. Thus, "007" comes before "6" in Publisher, whereas it's the reverse on the Mac and in LR. This plays havoc with the user's ability to cross-check and validate Publisher resources against system lists. Can't we have a match of Publisher's sort (everywhere, e.g., Resource Manager, Index, etc.) with the system it's installed on? Thanks! See example screenshot.
  9. Evening folks - quick question, How does one delete an Asset I created and added to the Assets panel it is no longer needed? Didn't want to start hitting 'delete' until I knew this correct procedure. Appreciate it. -Christo
  10. Hi, Recently, I got a macbook air that I have transferred all my old files, and apps to from a PC previously. I want to take affinity designer with me, but currently it is not working. Is it possible for me to transfer the software from my PC to the macbook air? If not, will I have to buy a brand a new version (which I am completely willing to do). Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!!
  11. Version 1.7.3 HyperLink Property Dialog in Mac Japanese Edition, "Hyperlink Type" translate "ハイパーリンクタイプ". Some text is not displayed. Maybe it depends on the Mac OS version.
  12. Hi how can I resize 100 photos? With PS I know how to, but now I use only Affinity Photo and I've stucked with this.
  13. Hello, I was wondering if within Affinity Designer is there a "Free transform tool" to allow perspective distort with shapes, this is something that can be done within illustrator where you can take two points and can move them together or further apart with equal distance like the example below. You can kinda do this with the "Corner" tool set to straight but this is set to only one angle when perspective distort can change the angle. Thank you for your time and I hope you have a great day.
  14. With photoshop this is pretty straight forward and I do not know what I am missing. I have a level adjustment and I slide the dark side in. Now I want to paint part of it back. If I use black or white it just leaves gray streaks. Please see videocast. What am I missing? https://www.dropbox.com/s/gjuq2zymnnkl3fc/Recording %23134.mp4?dl=0
  15. Hello, I use Affinity Photo on my MacBook Pro, Retina running MacOS Mojave. I'm having problems with affinity randomly crashing, sometimes I can even start it, it'll crash right away. I can't really identify an origin,… sometimes it crashes when I'm painting fast, sometimes even when I was looking at the painting/zooming out. My ram should be fine, I have around 20GB+ storage space and I never downloaded brushes or any other plugin. Already tried to reinstall and restart my Mac. I never had that before, just in the last two months, of the one year+ I'm working with Affinity. I hope someone knows more, or at least can tell me if Affinity Photo has Autosave (can't find it anywhere), so at least I can breathe. Thanks in advance, Vivi
  16. I have to export to a .pdf in order to get the same quality I see in the program. When I print directly from Affinity Publisher the quality is horrible. Why do I have to export in order to print? That is an additional step that I would like for you to eliminate...
  17. Aff. Photo v1.6.7 apparently allows to open .HEIC files. Strangely enough some can be opened and others not. I cannot see why anything in these files would be different. This makes me wonder: - is Aff. Photo for Mac v1.6.7 supporting HEIC for 100%? - what could be the reason some of these HEIC are not recognized and the following message is shown: "Failed to open file. This file type is not supported." Thanks for your help! file_recognized.HEIC file_not_recognized.HEIC
  18. Does Affinity Photo use fonts from the Mac's Library (System or User?). How and where do you add new fonts? Will Affinity access Mac's Font Book app. ?
  19. I am having consistent problems with affinity designer crashing. it crashes when i load and save files. I have attached a screenshot of the error messages. I am saving and loading from internal hard drive. My files have a combination of jpeg and vectors. Please help me understand how to fix this problem. THANKS!
  20. I recently upgraded to MacOS Catalina. My refine edges seemed to start actingwonky after that. When I choose to refine, the red mask shows up as expected. When I draw along the edges, all seems okay until the app finishes. At that point, the mask disappears and the marching and are completely gone. If I click Apply anyway (without seeing the results), the marching ants reappear and show where refinement took place, but I have to hit refine again, in order to do more work. Also, the previews only work while the mask is visible. Is anyone else experiencing this? I've been using AffinityPhotofor years and I can work around this glitch but it really slows me down. Any help would be much appreciated.
  21. I noticed that the console on Mac is reporting a lot of these errors (marked red) for me when running Affinity Photo in the foreground: void IOAccelFenceMachine::fence_timeout(IOTimerEventSource *): AMDRadeonAccelerator prodding blockFenceInterrupt Only AP seems to trigger them - Designer for example doesn't. Other graphics intensive software using Metal acceleration also seems unaffected. I've seen this error attributed to GPU freezes, hence the curiosity. What's the meaning of it? Happening on D500 GPU's on a 2013 Mac Pro.
  22. Designer, Publisher, and Photo version 1.7.3 in Mac. Layer -> Geometry Menu is different form icon order. See attachement Image.
  23. Every time I try to draw with Designer on Mac and iPad the curves I draw are instantly "corrected" after I finish. I've tried playing with settings of the application or the brushes but I couldn't find a way to just stop "correcting" my drawing strokes. Is this the expected behavior or is there a way to disable this? Please see an attached video of what I mean. Thanks. vector brush test.mov
  24. Mac Catalina 10.15.1 (19B88) on MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2019), 2.3 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9 A .jpg shot some years ago didn't display although it "opens" and I can see the thumbnail in the Navigator. It displayed fine when I opened it in Designer, so I resaved it in that and then it displayed in Photo. Lynn Hansen
  25. Hi - I'm in the process of switching from Windows to Mac and shoot on an EOS R, which I don't think is yet supported in the stable release. Mac's have raw conversion built in, and I know Affinity can use that feature. How is the conversion with the OS converters compared to the ones that are released with Affinity? Thanks!
